About us

A world in which every birth is wanted.
Children by choice, not chance.Marie Stopes International vision and mission

Marie Stopes Australia is the only national, independently accredited safe abortion, vasectomy and contraception provider helping women and men take full control of their reproductive lives.

Our patients are fully supported by a specialised team of practitioners. We provide, at no added cost, access to support services, including pre-care, counselling, 24-hour aftercare, and interpreters – ensuring they get the best standard of care before, during and after their appointment with us.

We have cared for more than 600,000 Australians in the almost 20 years we have led national sexual and reproductive health provision in this country. In that time, we have worked tirelessly to expand access, investing our own funds to bring medical abortion to Australia, through our non-profit pharmaceutical company MS Health, and to fill the public funding shortfall in preventative family planning services and education.

Our profit for purpose model allows us to offer reduced cost and free services on a needs basis with our own funds, through our community partners, and increasingly with the generous support of private donors. Profits generated in Australia also help support family planning programs in our region, through the work of Marie Stopes International Australia.

Marie Stopes Australia is a non-profit organisation, part of the Marie Stopes International global partnership, which provides life-changing family planning services to over 25 million people in need each year.
